8 ½” x 11” blue cardstock
8 ½” x 11” white cardstock
3 small brads
Yellow ink pad
This free paper craft project shows you how to make your very own hand-made Fourth Of July day card using simple Card making instructions.
1. Cut your blue cardstock in half. You should have two 5 ½” x 8 ½” pieces of paper. Fold one of them in half. Cut a strip of white cardstock into 2 ¼” x 5 ½”. *Ink* around the strip of white cardstock by brushing the edges along the yellow ink pad. Glue the strip of white cardstock across the center the card. Do the same *inking* technique around the edges of the blue card.
2. Out of the extra white cardstock cut out 3 stars. 3 ¼” (large), 2” (medium), and 1 ¼” (small). Wrap the yellow yarn around the large star. Wrap the blue yarn around the medium star and wrap the small star with the red yarn. Take your three brads and place one in the center of each star.
3. Glue the stars onto the white strip of paper. Blue, yellow and red.
